I have been working at Perceptive Software full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great vacation policy, happy hours, casual environment, you get to know everyone in the building- lots of cross-functional opportunities

Cons

Lack of career progression in certain departments, a lot more political than 5 years ago when it was a private company, family fun activities have been eliminated, too many people "own" the same process and don't want to help push change to a process that is broken or needs improving

Advice to Management

Don't become another typically "office space" environment. Bring back the things that made the company fun! While you do not have to have extravagant Christmas parties, don't take away all family activities. Replace them with something lower cost. Offer career progression in all departments. Make sure those doing the dirty work are properly recognized.

    I have been working at Perceptive Software full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good software company to work for in Kansas City. Not sure why there is such a low ranking. Looking around at other software companies in Kansas City I cannot find one that I would rate as high as this company. Sure there could be some improvements but I am satisfied with working here.

    Good work/life balance.
    Flexible Vacation Policy.

    Cons

    Professional Services Policies are a mess

    I have been working at Perceptive Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Perceptive has a very relaxed culture. As long as you're getting your work done, they aren't sticklers for the 40 hour week or the 3 weeks of vacation per year thing. It's a work hard play hard atmosphere. Compensation and benefits are also very competitive for the area.

    Cons

    The fun culture seems to be declining since Perceptive was bought by Lexmark. Many of the perks have been slowly disappearing and I'm not quite sure when (or if) that will plateau.
